Which schools are affected?
We are making some changes to the XoD connector tool used to manage the data transfer between some schools’ Management Information System (e.g. SIMS, Bromcom) and Compass+.
If your school uses XoD and has been using Compass+ before April 2022, the connection between your school's MIS and Compass+ will be migrated by the end of 2022. Most schools who started using Compass+ after April 2022 will not need to be migrated.
Why is this change happening?
The data connection provider Compass+ currently uses, Assembly, has been acquired by a different company, Groupcall. Assembly Xporter On Demand (XoD) will soon be managed through the Groupcall Xporter interface rather than the Assembly interface.
My school uses XoD - do I need to do anything now? Can I continue using Compass+ while these changes are happening?
We are preparing your Compass+ installation for migration over the summer, and plan to migrate your school to the new connector tool before the end of 2022. You do not need to take any action at present and your school can continue using Compass+ as before.
What are the next steps?
When we have completed your migration to the new interface, you will need to login to Groupcall Xporter instead of Assembly whenever you need to manage your connection.
